Charleston-based Doom Flamingo have risen to great heights since their initial recording sessions in May of 2018. They’ve released four new singles (the newest of which can be heard here), played their first live shows including a house-crumbling late night show in Atlanta during Umphrey’s McGee’s New Years run, and were named one of the standout new bands of 2018 by Jambase.
Picking up in 2019 where they left off, Doom Flamingo have just announced a partnership with booking agents and festival consultants, Midwood Entertainment. Rusty Cole, Head of Talent Division and Partner at Midwood couldn’t be more excited. Cole says of the band, “Once I saw them live, it was a no brainer. Doom Flamingo is something special and blows the roof off live! There will be a lot of great things to come-- this is not a flash in the pan.” The first fruit of this partnership is a string of Spring tour dates including stops in Brooklyn, Nashville, and Denver (see below for full tour listing). Band members Ryan Stasik (bass, Umphrey’s McGee), Kanika Moore (vocals), Ross Bogan (keys, RoBoTrio), Thomas Kenney (guitar, Terraphonics), Stuart White (drums), and Mike Quinn (saxophone) are preparing to bring their brand of synthwave to a number of new cities, giving audiences a first chance to hear what DF calls “Top Gun guitar riffs and Miami Beach poolside lounge vibes, all at once contrasted with dark-synth sounds eerily reminiscent of old John Carpenter films.”
In addition to new music and new tour dates, Doom Flamingo have been hard at work with Charleston’s Fatty’s Beer Works perfecting their first ever beer collaboration, which will be released at Charleston Pour House on April 27th. The new brew is a single malt, single hop India Pale Ale brewed with Golden Promise malt, Strata Hops, and industrial hemp. “Music and beer go hand in hand. Fatty's has long thought live music creates the atmosphere and vibe, and collectively brings together brand and patrons into a powerful force,” says David McClain, Founder and CEO of Fatty’s Beer Works. “The innovative and progressive music of Doom Flamingo creates the perfect platform and synergies to create wild and wonderful beer everyone enjoys together.”
Fans should also keep an eye out for the Doom Flamingo graphic novel, currently in production.
